When a person wish you to progress and does everything to see you there, that person cares about you and should be appreciated each and every time, to my lender, thank you for everything and the entire Zidisha fraternity. The day has started well and every time I go to open my shop I remember you. Thank you once again, I see that the just applied loan for the second time is also being funded progressively. I appreciate for you taking time and resources to help those in need to see that their lives change, it's said that the hand that gives receives. May you receive more.

Dear Lenders,
Thank you very much for your overwhelming support towards my business venture. The political instability cause by last year’s presidential elections really affected my business. Thus affecting my repayment rate. Now things are better my clients are making more and more inquires.
With this loan, I will purchase more camping and outdoor training Equipment. This will make me be able to extend my services to larger groups thus increasing my business' profitability.
My ultimate goal is to own a camp site and make my precious angels at my children's orphanage have a comfortable life as am still the sole supporter.

Once thank you so much and may God bless you for the great sacrifice.
